    ViacomCBS posts quarterly loss

    Investors gave ViacomCBS a big thumbs down over its first report card since THE TWO COMPANIES REUNITED. THE media conglomerate posted a quarterly loss, and its adjusted earnings tumbled, FALLING far short of analysts' estimates. CBS and Viacom finally completed their merger in December after multiple attempts had failed. That reunited media mogul Sumner Redstone's entertainment empire, combining CBS News and Showtime with Nickelodon, Comedy Central and Paramount movie studios. Prompting the remarriage: an increasingly competitive landscape dominated by Disney and Netflix. TO TAKE ON THAT COMPETITION: ViacomCBS also revealed plans to create a new streaming video service built off of its existing CBS All Access service that will offer free, paid and a premium tier subscription service. The disappointing results sent shares of ViacomCBS down more than 15% in early trading Thursday.

    Media Pro: ViacomCBS Q4 Numbers 'Aren't Great'

    ViacomCBS Inc. (NASDAQ: VIAC), born out of the merger of CBS and Viacom, reported Thursday its first-ever quarterly results as a combined entity. ViacomCBS' earnings report showed a loss in video subscribers which is certainly pressuring the company's growth profile, Greenfield said on CNBC. While this could be attributed to the ongoing cord-cutting trend, there is a bigger concern that goes unaddressed and relates to management's own streaming service.

    ViacomCBS profit and revenue disappoints, sinks shares

    The company's revenue and free cash flow guidance for 2020 was "a bit shocking" and lower than Wall Street expected, said Daniel Kurnos, analyst at Benchmark Company. The merger reunited media mogul Sumner Redstone's entertainment empire and brought Showtime networks and CBS News under the same roof as Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and Paramount movie studios. ViacomCBS also revealed plans to create a new streaming video service built off of its existing CBS All Access service that will offer free, paid and a premium tier subscription service.

    CBS All Access to gain content from Nick, MTV, Comedy Central, Paramount Pictures & more

    CBS All Access, the streaming service now owned by ViacomCBS following the merger, is expanding. Announced today as part of the company's otherwise underwhelming Q4 earnings, the plan is to launch a new "broad pay" streaming service that will include CBS All Access content along with other ViacomCBS assets in film and TV to complement the company's existing free streaming service Pluto TV and premium network Showtime. The company believes this three-tiered strategy of free, broad pay and premium content will help it to better acquire market share in the increasingly crowded streaming space, while also helping improve metrics around subscription acquisition, churn and lifetime value by offering promotions and bundles.
